Slightly expensive, but exquisite splurge. Sweet potato/ spinach salad, bread dipped in pesto oil, lovely scallops over mussels in sweet potato purée. Incredible!

Catch is clearly the best "modern" seafood restaurant in the area. We started with a wonderful local shrimp ceviche which had the perfect balance of acidity and tasted like the shrimp were minutes from the sea. Our entrees were both specials and were examples of why you go out to a fine restaurant. I had the seared tuna with a... More

Our second visit to this charming restaurant off the beaten path in Wilmington. A low key friendly ambiance in a fairly small but well laid out venue. Intimate but not crowded together. Creative seafood oriented menu with beautiful presentation. I had the local grouper...tender and flavorful. Surprisingly varied wine list too. A keeper!

My wife and I finally made reservations for a dinner. My only question is, "what took us so long?" The menu items were certainly different variations of seafood selections one can choose from in other good local restaurants. A very attentive wait staff. If you are in the Wilmington area and want to try seafood, this is the place to... More

Tired of fried fare? Appreciate creativity? Want to do grouper an exalted honor? We like Catch for taking seafood to a culinary level in Wilmington that we see in fancy magazines and wish we could experience.

My wife and I have been to Catch many times and it is always outstanding! The chef Keith Rhodes really knows what he is doing and has new and innovative ways of preparing seafood. He focuses on using fresh local ingredients. Do yourself a favor and go to this restaurant, you will not be disappointed.

We really, really, really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was outstanding - interesting flavors, perfect portions, fresh and tasty. I recommend the Sweet Potato Salad - light, fresh, great taste. And the Bananas Foster Crème Brulee was soooooo good - light, but lots of flavor. The crust was crunchy and sweet, the crème was soft, not too gelatin-like. It was... More
